    Hello, we are planning our first trip to Disney world and are flexible with travel time, although we would prefer to go early 2014 before school gets out. When would you recommend going when it will be warm enough to swim but not too crowded? Thanks!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your important question, Kimberly. Deciding on a travel date is one of the most important parts of the planning process. So, let's get started.

    My suggestion would be to travel to Walt Disney World in mid to late April. By going in the latter part of the month, most Spring Break and Easter holidays will be over, thus reducing the crowds. The weather in April is quite nice. It will definitely be warm enough to swim (and potentially visit a water park). Average temperatures for this time of year are highs in the low to mid 80s and lows in the 60s. April also tends to be one of the months in Florida with the least amount of rainfall, although this isn't to say that there won't be an occasional shower. It is Florida, after all!

    I hope this offers something to think about as you decide your travel dates. Be sure to stop back by and ask me any other questions you might have during your planning. I'd be happy to help you plan your first Walt Disney World vacation.
